This image shows pore scale simulation of heat and mass transfer in a metal foam. Plane sections: fluid velocity, solid surface and stream lines colored by solid and fluid temperature. Solid structure is reconstructed from 3D sample tomography. Simulations performed to obtain the effective (macroscale) transfer properties.  IUSTI Lab/Heat and Mass Transfer team/Jean-Michel HUGO  This image shows a nanochannel with a hot wall (left) and a cold wall (right). Heat transfer in the nanochannel is simulated using molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods; the research has been conducted by Nidea, Frijns, van Steenhoven and Markvoort ( This image shows the temperature field behind a heated cylinder, measured using Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF). The flow has a Reynolds number of 130 and a Richardson number of 1.5. This image is taken from a study by Seuntiëns, Rindt and van Steenhoven ( This image depicts the evolution of a 3.8 mm equivalent diameter bubble, during its growth and departure from a 1 mm orifice, its rise and bouncing upon a heated surface. The release height in this case is 25 mm. Donoghue, Murray & Robinson, Fluids & Heat Transfer research group, Trinity College Dublin.
